In our k class we use iPads as a learning tool. This week I have introduced the app LetterSchool this app provides a lot of support for students. It models how to form the letter. It helps as the child learns how to make the letter and coaches the child through the formation of the letter. The app also has a time in which it lets students write the letter on their own. If you are looking for apps to support your child at home you might want to consider Letter School.
A free app Alphabet Tracer is also good for supporting letter formation but it does have in app pruchases.
Over the course of the year, I will be posting more app suggestions both in the biweekly newsletters and on our blog.
